The Eicha Revolution

The Kotzker Rebbe observed: “There is no place lonelier than a room full of people.” There are too many lonely places amongst our people, and too many lonely people. There are too many distinctions, too many partitions, and too many Jews that aren’t allowed in. Jerusalem is lonely. There is destruction, insecurity and danger in Jerusalem when Jews stand aloof, apart and alone.

What can we do to rectify this problem? Yesterday, I had the privilege of addressing the women of Bayit V'Gan in preparation for Tisha B'Av. I'd like to share this presentation with you.
